If you’re an Xbox 360-owning racing fan, chances are you’ve already gone out and picked up a copy of Forza 2, and chances are you’ve enjoyed it. However, if you’re a non-Xbox 360-owning racing fan, chances are you’ve been looking at the screenshots and ravings about the game with a good bit of curiosity and maybe even a little envy as console racers play a game in which you can go from power off to racing online against friends, lag free, inside of two minutes. That can’t be said of your average PC racing sim. If you’re part of that latter group, this deal is for you, then.
Microsoft has announced two new bundles, a $449.99 Xbox 360 Elite bundle and a $349.99 Xbox 360 Premium bundle. Both include free copies of Forza Motorsport 2 and Marvel: Ultimate Alliance. While we could take or leave the latter, the former of course makes this a very appealing offer for those wanting to get their console race on.
